Thomas Robert (Bob) Hart (August 23rd, 1927 - July 6th, 2020)

Bob passed peacefully at Lakeridge Health Oshawa, at 92 years of age. Sadly missed by his family; loving wife Marion of 67 years, daughters, Kathy (Jack Brigden) of Oshawa, Barbara-Ann (Colin White), of Naperville Il, granddaughters , Elisabeth White of Vancouver, and Meredith White of Ottawa, as well as his many friends will greatly miss his sense of humor and all the love he gave us. He is reunited with his son Tom (1978).

Bob had successful careers as a salesman. Early on as a clerk at Dancey’s Shoes in Oshawa, to becoming manager of Haden McDonald Wholesale in Cobourg, then to becoming owner of York Sales and finally as manager with Manulife. We all knew “he could sell anything to anyone”. He was a member of St John’s Masonic Lodge of Cobourg for 70 years. For many years he served as an elder at St Paul’s Presbyterian Church. He and Marion loved their time as members of the Oshawa Golf Club. Arrangements entrusted to OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME. A celebration of Bob’s life to be planned for a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the Lakeridge Health Foundation or a charity of your choice.

Bob would want us all to remember: Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a mystery Today is a gift That’s why they call it the present

Talking with Mary Jane about Bob and Marion and just googled his name and was sad to see his obituary and that he just passed. Just want to offer our deepest sympathy to the Hart family. Sorry for your lost.

May Bob Rest in Peace and my love to Marion and her family. Bob and I have been friends for more than 50 years. He also was positive and smiling and was a great man and will be missed. He had his own business and was a great salesman. When he sold his business he joined my firm TPA Financial Group of Companies as an advisor and shared many ideas with me and my staff. We went on many trips, we had great golf games and enjoyed many Polish Easters when he announced he was not a big eater. Where did the time go Bob?

Always a smile on his face (except maybe, when his E'ville condo was wrapped in caution tape)!

My sincere condolences to Marion and to Kathy and Jack, BA and Colin and Beth and Meredith. May the memories provide some comfort to you all. Sending our thoughts and love to each of you.

There were wonderful times we spent on the TPA trips. Bob and Marion provided me with great memories. Also, I know Bob is now reunited with his son Tom who I attended summer camp with almost 50 years ago. Now Bob is at peace. Glad to have known you Bob.

Marion, Kathy & Barbara-Ann I was saddened to hear of Bob's death. I have many memories of his big smile and hug whenever I saw him. You were friends of my Mom & Dad and it seems like I have always known you - at cottages, at St Paul's, at the Oshawa Centre... Bob will be missed. Marci
